Re: cd player skips
Unit has a faulty spindle motor. the reason it plays OK on its end is because the bearings have failed and causing it to mistrack. a dopr of fine oil to the top bearing of the motor will make it work better but the motor needs to be replaced to fix properly.

The problem is in the laser pickup, overtime the laser becomes weak and in some cases will skip or play the odd cd. It is possible the laser lens is dirty and needs to be cleaned, a Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol will sometimes bring it back to full operation. "if you can reach it" Dip the Q-Tip in the alcohol and very gently clean in a circular motion, use a fresh Q-Tip to dry off, if no change contact www.bose.com for customer support and ask for technical assistance, since this is a high end product it should be serviced by the people who make it because they have direct access to the parts.
Generally this means that it needs cleaning. Start with vacuuming the open aperture with a nozzle tool to **** out as much dust as possible. Then use a CD lens cleaning disc to clean the lens. This should enable the discs to play. Also you can clean the lens with a cotton tip and some isopropyl alcohol and twist the tip over the lens a few times
Unplug the unit, remove the cover and clean the laser lens glass with a Q-tip. Spray a bit of window cleaner on one end of the Q-tip (over a sink), then use that end to clean the objective lens of the laser. Then dry it with the other end. Wipe Carefully!
Do not apply pressure while cleaning, wipe slowly and then reassemble the unit and test. This is a common problem on many laser-based products, dust and smog get inside the unit and cloud the lens, causing it to skip or not read at all.
You might need to have it professionally cleaned / diagnosed. The problem might not be a dirty reader, but a misaligned tray. Many trays, over time, become misaligned. Some more than others. Depends on your use and abuse of the unit. The issues generally happen towards the end of the tracks.
